Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, medical specialist.

I am here to provide you with great service.

Your alkaline phosphatase level is mildly elevated.

This can be due to either bone or liver problem.

Your albumin level is little low which can signify liver problem as well.

Your cholesterol is normal.

Although not overtly concerning, I will recommend a liver ultrasound.

Also another possiblity called multiple myeloma should be checked out.

Multiple myeloma can cause low albumin and high alkaline phosphatase level from bone lesions.

Serum and urine protein electropheresis should be considered as well.

Most likely your values are not concerning.

But it is better to get the above tests done to rule out any serious underlying condition.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
